This classic Barnraising Log Vabin quilt is done in an unusual palette. It is not often that one sees the predominance of the rich, reddish brown. Printed and solid color lightweight wools are well combined throughout. Lore has it that the red centers represent fire in the hearth of the cabin. The front is all wool; the back is cotton calico. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 80" square; circa 1880.
